A hunting camera: the perfect way to see what goes on when you’re not around. You can set it all up to get just the picture you would like… and then it is no longer in your hands.
In a scenic, swampy area bear trails and bear plops were a dead giveaway that several bears were in the area. It was the perfect place to test a new camera. I don’t want to shoot anything; it’s the picture that matters. This time, I took a test picture to see what I could expect.Good. That’s the bear trail just to the right of those foreground trees. I think they’ll be coming in from the left. So, tie the camera to the tree, switch it on and get out without another nice shot of my behind (I’m learning so much).
A few hours later…
Rummage rummage rummage. There may have been more than two bears. It is difficult to tell them apart in the dark and over a series of pictures they sometimes seem to move quite quickly. The camera is set to take pictures three seconds apart.
I guess that could get annoying.
But but a few hours later one of the bears was still objecting. I think that’s an ear on the right but it could be any hairy bear bit. The camera is facing the original direction again. For the moment.
